David Brooks: "My Sprawling, Supersize Ego" 

Dear Daniel Okrent --

You've told us that it doesn't matter if Op-Ed contributers make shit up, because it is their opinion, and William Safire says opinions can't be wrong.

But if you're going to let David "Make Shit Up" Brooks write a magazine feature, why not encourage him to include some actual, verifiable information in said feature.

No -- it's just more making shit up and name-checking chain stores, spewing out your vast recieved widsom in a smarmy, authoritive voice, invoking all sorts of hypthetical Regular Folk to inhabit your completly invented fantasy-land of Our Town, shifted to "exurbia."

Oh, wait -- you're plugging a fucking book.
